As Told By Ginger is an animated series which debuted on Nickelodeon in 2000. Produced by Klasky Csupo (the creators of Rugrats  and a bunch of other Nicktoons during the 90's and early 2000's), and created by Emily Kapnek. This is also the last Nicktoon to be produced by Klasky-Csupo (not counting the Rugrats spin offs).


The show revolves around the life of Ginger Foutley, a typical junior high school student who lives in a fictional Connecticut community named Sheltered Shrubs. She often tries to improve her social calendar and become more popular, but usually gets mixed up in jams because of guidance from her three best friends; Dodie, Macie and Courtney and the schemes of her nemesis, Miranda. Ginger also receives guidance from her mother, Lois, who is a nurse at the hospital. Every episode ends with Ginger writing a story in her diary recapping the events of the show. 

The series is unique among other Nicktoons, since it is a coming-of-age drama series, has an ongoing story arc, deals with mature subjects, the characters age and change their clothes and there is little-to-no comedy or fictional stuff at all. As a result, the show was soon moved to the TeenNick segment and is the first Nicktoon to make it there.

The show got nomination for three Emmys. As a result, it is considered Klasky Csupo's best Nicktoon ever (besides the Rugrats franchise).
